'... important book ... If one wants to understand the policy origins of China's growing divide between rich and poor, urban and rural, one need look no further than this book.' William Kirby, Harvard University
'Sure to generate a lively debate, Professor Huang's study provides a provocative and well-researched challenge to much current thinking on China's economic development.' Susan Rose-Ackerman, Yale Law School
'... Capitalism with Chinese Characteristics is both immensely informative and enormously provocative.' Charles Wolf, Jr, Pardee RAND Graduate School
'... the scale of the research is impressive, and goes beyond most western commentators other than those with high-level Chinese language skills and access to the primary sources. ... the book is overall an important reminder that the story of China's growth rewards detailed research and is not simply the tale of a gradual deepening of market-led economic reform. ... Huang's tale of the first two decades of China's economic reform is indeed worth bearing in mind when watching the latest developments.' The Business Economist
'... profoundly informative book ...' The Spokesman
'This is among the most important books to appear on contemporary China this decade. Motivated by a socially conscious economic liberalism and guided by a firmly positivist epistemology, Yasheng Huang challenges - and defeats - some of the most sacred myths surrounding the Chinese political economy as reinforced by scholars and widely accepted by the general public. The book is essential reading for any political scientist specializing in China, international relations, comparative economic development, or comparative political change.' Perspectives on Politics
'[Marshals] an impressive array of survey and documentary evidence ... a must-read for China specialists.' The Journal of Asian Studies
